Took the crazy hosts boat ride out to Montegue Island, twice now safe large vessel, confident pilots, saw dolphins, birds, penguins, absobred dome history and solace out at the island. Excellent experience.

Great late afternoon tour then heading back at night. Probably don't go on a hot and muggy day like we did as there isn't much relief. Would be nice if the charter provided chilled bottles of water. Everyone was told to bring their own but for the price you're paying it's not much to provide. Otherwise staff were obliging and... More

Visited the island first week of January 17 and wasn't overly impressed with the lighthouse tour. 3 boats of tourists with approx 40 plus people doesn't make for a pleasant time. Couldn't hear the guides, was very hot, was too much waiting around for everyone. Better to do do trip out of peak season. Seagulls were very entertaining though, enjoyed... More

It took us 4 attempts to get out due to weather conditions. However it was well worth the wait. We had a very interesting island tour with a guide whose knowledge of the island was amazing. Snorkelling with the seals was wonderful and with lots of help from the crew our 6 year old also got the chance. Thanks guys... More

Weather and all external factors were ideal, however, I found the staff on the boat to be unprofessional. My question about whether sharks or other sea creatures were a concern (given I don't know the area) was mocked. It was a fair question given we were to snorkel with seals, and sharks prey on seals. Their job is to ensure... More

The skipper and deckie were very welcoming, cracking a lot of dad jokes. The deckie answered my questions about sea depth and other things without hesitation. The trip out was fantastic. The tour was beautiful and interesting. Very safe and would recommend them to get you to the island.

Yesterday was great, the weather was beautiful, the sea calm and so we went to Montague Island, we saw Seals, loads of seagulls and then the penguins 🌞🐧 we went up the Lighthouse and the views are spectacular. Narooma Charters were great, helpful and friendly and got us some great opportunities to see the Seals and gave us a very... More

My family took a trip out to Montague Island on a hot Summer's day and really enjoyed it. The highlight was "snorkelling with the seals" though we wished the boat had moored a bit closer to the seal colony! Highly recommend the trip if you are coming to Narooma.

You do need to be a confident swimmer on this trip to swim with the seals. On booking at the office I was informed as long as you can float. The boat was docked not as close to the seals as anticipated or as seen by some other boats
